Windows Phone and Snapchat have been in a long dance for the past year or so, the details of which are unimportant right now. The end result is that Windows Phone users have no way to use Snapchat on their devices, either officially or via third-party. Famous third party developer, Rudy Huyn, a central figure in much of this drama yesterday night launched an app based on Snapchat’s Discover feature, 6Discover. It effectively brought one of the features of Snapchat (branded content), to the Windows Phone store….and Snapchat wants it gone already.
It is clear by now that Snapchat wants no part of Microsoft’s ecosystem and are not willing to make an exception for anyone. As Rudy makes another public attempt to communicate with Snapchat, we’ll be watching to see if this drama ends the same as all the others before it.
